Squeeze those hops for all they’re worth and prepare to pucker up: Tröegs’ newest single batch brew, Nugget Nectar Ale, will take hopheads to nirvana with a heady collection of Nugget, Warrior and Tomahawk hops. Starting with the same base ingredients of our flagship HopBack Amber Ale, Nugget Nectar intensifies the malt and hop flavors to create an explosive hop experience.

12 oz bottle from Chuck’s in Bowling Green. A great balanced malty sweetness against intense hop bitters, but it all melds together into a very mellow mouth feel, followed by a full on pucker. This after the bottles have been carefully cold-aging since winter! There’s a pleasant mild yeast aroma, reminiscent of a good white wine. Very thin but lingering white head. Rich amber body. Slight carbonation. An excellent IPA.

Bottle from local. My new favorite "everyday" beer. Clear orange amber pour with sticky white head that leaves rings of lacing. Aroma is beautiful hops, pine, citrus, and floral. Flavors balance well between the hops and malt..not too biting.

Pours a crystal clear amber with a white head that lasts 1/2 way though the beer and a subtle lacing. There are complex flavors of citrus, floral hops, and an aromatic sweetness. On mouth this beer delivers a hoppy flavored beer with plenty of citrus and orange flavors. As this ale finishes, it delivers a semi-dry hoppy finish that is very easy leaving you want more.

Bottle 35.5 cl thanks to Aaron. Head is gone aftere minutes, but leaves lacing on glass; remains, until the end, an impressive bright orange, rusty red, amber. Aroma is full of cotton candy, cherries, citrus, mandarin, clementine, with the freshness of those two in particular. Good impact with mouthfeel, drinkability is on TOP; caramel is minimal, carbonation extremely balanced. Malt is perfectly binded with citrus that - differently from usual citric dominance - tends to oranges. Grass, white peaches and apricot notes too. Maybe finish isn’t so intense, but surely long lasting and oriented to the harsh feeling of dried orange and apricots. Dry the sides of mouth. Anyway, this is the perfect amber IPA: like a less powerful Shark Attack, it don’t gives you the slap but a pleasant stroke. Very great example of a not WC-IPA.

pours out deep honey producing a huge beige white head that was pretty thick and slow to fall. the body is a really clear amber with very few bubbles rising up. the aromas are yeasty and citrusy with good notes of fresh pine and hops with a slight bready undertone. it is almost full bodied and pretty malty like an amber but has a really defined hop taste and presence and it is felt all the way through the palate. i taste the noted aromas and it finishes almost dry but a little buttery with a really light sweet tasting aftertaste.

Fresh perrenial flowers. Good smell of the openning petals of a flower. Great amber color that is deeper than most. Great fluffy head. Hello hops. Like fresh topsoil. Good stuff. Leaves a great hoppy aftertaste

Amber-colored pour has an intensely hoppy nose with lively resin and citrus. Palate is smooth with lively carbonation. Flavor is basically a hop showcase with many nice pine and citrus notes. The finish is mouth-puckering and dry in a testament to the ibu level. Somehow this seems balanced and is incredibly drinkable, even though the hops totally dominate. I am glad I sought this one out.

Bottle. Amber clear pour with one fingure of head that dissapears quickly. While its in your mouth, the taste is of pine and light fruits, grapefruit/orange. During the swallow the hops really come out making a great finish. I had this alongside a Hopslam, I prefer the Hopslam a little, but take nothing from this brew, still very good.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2008 From a bottle. Pours a very uninteresting amber color. The Aroma however is great. Huge pine aromas and alot sweet citrusy hops come through. More sticky piney hops in the taste and end with juicy citrusy sweet hop taste. This is a great IPA. Very drinkable...even better than drinkable I would consider it gulpable...I need to get some more of this stuff while I can.

22 oz bottle. Poured dark orange with nice frothy head and great lacing. Aroma of citrus and floral. Taste is a light bitter. Body is medium and texture is thin with a light bitter finish. Hops burst out in this beer with strong citrus flavors. Overall, a great beer, especially for the $5.99 price on the 22 oz. Def worth the purchase.
